@Lolasmomma: yes! I just opened this up to say “exactly 29 weeks” and there you go, you too, huh?? 

I hadn’t been swelling at all until the Monday before last – I went to work wearing my heels as usual and it wasn’t even noon before my feet were swelling up and over my shoes! I called my Dr. and she asked if I had any leg pain – funny thing, I did! I woke up with a charley-horse in my left calf, so she asked me to come in right away. The danger is if it’s in relation to your blood pressure – it wasn’t. 

Do you sit in an office all day? My swelling is due to sitting for the majority of my work day, crossing my legs. The weight of my belly is cutting off the circulation and fluid is just collecting in my legs/feet. They said to elevate them when I can, try icing them. When I go home I do lie on my left side and ice and they do go down but a couple hours into the work day and they’re back up again. I have 3 pairs of shoes that fit me right now. Two pairs of Uggs and flip flops, totally professional for my office, ugh… no one cares but I just feel so awful and half-dressed, I hate it. Oh well, 10 more weeks! 🙂
